UFC Fight Night 115 Replay
After approximately a month-long hiatus from live action – unless you count Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. Thanks to the mega-fight in between UFC light-weight champ Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr., the UFC comes back to the Octagon on Saturday, Sept. 2, in the Netherlands. The UFC also doesn’t lose at any time in bringing us maybe the biggest fight possible (actually) on this card, as the main event boasts 2 of the highest fighters in the UFC.
Stefan Struve, all almost 7 feet of him, deals with previous Bellator MMA heavyweight champ Alexander Volkov, who is available in at an excellent 6-foot-7. The UFC’s heavyweight department remains in desperate need of some new competitors, and though Struve has been a member of the UFC for more than 8 years, he hasn’t yet sniffed a title shot. Volkov was a champion in the competing Bellator organization and enters this bout following a success over UFC veteran and current Bellator addition Roy Nelson. With a lack of new blood in the heavyweight department, can one of these heavyweights end up looming big over the department and potentially present an obstacle for UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic?
The UFC’s newest abroad offering functions other fighters with notable experience in the Octagon, consisting of Marion Reneau, Siyar Bahadurzada, Bryan Barberena and Rustam Khabilov.
The battles air specifically on UFC Fight Pass, with the initial card beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET and the main card starting at 3 p.m. ET. Combat Press writers Chris Huntemann and Sal DeRose sneak peek the event in this edition of Toe-to-Toe.
